        sunshine removal Sign In/Join 
        posted
        as you know, I have lived in florida for many years, and we get many days of sunshine. Now all this sunshine is beginning to build up to where it will soon block the entrance to the house. I've gone on line many times to find a sunshine shovel, but all I can find is snow shovels, thats kind of silly here. So I'm asking if anyone on this board knows where I can get one or maybe lend me a sunshine shovel Confused
        by the way, whats todays date ?

        Maybe we can send all the spammers to Florida and let their hot air absorb the sunshine?

        OTOH, perhaps they'd just make the situation worse, and I wouldn't want to wish them on anyone.

        that's easy, nona. take that extra sunshine to the window where they are keeping the daylight savings time for you, and deposit it. you can come back when prepping for hurricanes and take a few days back out.


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        Nona, contact your local federal p_o_l_i_t_i_c_i_a_n_s. They find ways to exploit everything.

        Perhaps they can find someone in their district who (contributed to their c_a_m_p_a_i_g_n_s) can get a government grant to develop a sunshine shovel, and another contributor to build sunshine transportation trucks.

        Then the sunshine can be hauled to Alaska and distributed to people who can qualify for a sunshine bailout.

        The p_o_l_i_t_i_c_i_a_n_s can claim credit for green energy development and job creation. Maybe you can even get paid for selling your sunshine, or maybe you can auction off rights to it.

        Better hurry to your attorney to legalize all this so you can get your 15 minutes of fame and get credit for saving the environment. Heck, maybe you could even run for office after performing such a noble feat.

        Or maybe you could produce a DIY show on sunshine removal. Make sure Nicole stars and wears a tank top, but be sure to get some men in tank tops too. Your ratings will soar! Holmes will be jealous!

        well I listened to all the advice given and had a hard time deciding which one to use. We did contact the S.B.A ( snow bird association )and they said they will collect it from me and send it north when you have another winter like the one you had when you experienced the nice weather, but then squandered it and it snowed for 40 days and 40 nights.
        They also said that they will send a sample to you so you will recognize it when you get it in abundance Enjoy my sunshine, it should arrive at your doorstep sometime in July

        Nona, ROFLMFAO! Great response!

        I'll watch for my sunload when the power goes off in July as it does when the temps hit 95. I'm counting on you now!

        the original acronym, back in the days of the Teletype to CompuServe, was "Rolling On Floor Laughing."

        in the 80s, when I was taking a second degree in computer science, my favorite microprocessor command (opcode) was HCF... Halt and Catch Fire. dont' remember a single chip I used having that command, though.

        Nona, I've changed my mind. Can I put in a special request for delivery of my sunshine?

        I'd like it in late October to November to help the melon crops mature; they sometimes have a rough time if Michigan Falls are too cool.

        In return, maybe I can send some melons down to you with some of the local Snowbirds who trek to the South every year.

        Deal?

        Seriously, so did we, at least I did, and I think Swschrad and Nona did (but I really can't speak for them Smile.

        And BTW, I'm a girl, at least as far as I know.

        I'm still waiting for Nona's response to my commercialization suggestions - see his Sunshine Truck post under the Home Improvement Section. I still think it's a great idea to copy the Wall Street guys' penchant for exploiting everything and commercialize a basic commodity. Those guys sure know how to make money and play the system!

        (http://boards.diynetwork.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/8421916776/m/3873934967).

        And now we have a lot of rain; maybe Nona and Swschrad can help figure out a way to capture our excess rain and send it to drought areas.

        Anyone need some thunder, lightning and a lot of good rain?

        re: Wall Street practices.

        I sold your sunshine truck idea to the Chinese a couple days ago for a squillion billion yen, about $6.95 in real money. they filled the sunshine with lead and are selling it even now in Guangdong Province, where the pollution blocks the sun.

        great minds think alike Wink and since I am Aquarius with Pisces rising (all wet and everything I do is a little fishy,) thanks for buying lunch Wink

        was that your thundersnow we got this morning?

        Yeah, I get that alot too.
        When confused by other's confusion...I just take a look "where the sun don't shine", and it usually clears things up. At least in my mind, can't say for anyone else.

        This is so much more fun than SPAM!

        Swschard , well I am shocked and hurt. Here I paid for your lavish lobster and prime rib lunch, a few bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon, and several pieces of cheesecake for dessert, and even allowed myself to be embarrassed when you danced on the table...all the while thinking that we were going to become partners. Now I discover that you sold me out behind my back.

        But you are certainly a credit to the Wall Street creed!

        I do hope you licensed the concept of selling sunshine, or arranged for energy credits. I hear the Chinese have marked up the leaded sunshine by threefold and have used the money for hackers to hack into the Defense Department again.

        Seems they're thinking about developing a weapon to use satellites to channel all the sunshine to them so they can have a monopoly on it, as they've created a monopoly on so many consumer goods. They learned their lessons from Wall Street well.

        When I found out what you did, I sent plenty of thundersnow your way. "Hell hath no fury like a woman [cheated]." I hope you enjoyed the pelleted ice as well. Took some effort to create that

        Next time I'll find a different business partner - one who likes salads for lunch (and who pays for MY lunch - I shouldn't have insisted on being such a liberated and progressive woman.)

        And thanks for the laughs. Now I can finish my taxes without crying.


        Nona, your April Fool's joke apparently came at the right time....end of winter, tax season, handwringing, plans to give up food to pay the taxes, and all that stuff.

        Can't wait to see what you come up with next.


        Conrad, loved your method of "confirmation". I could never forget that I'm female, even if I wanted to Big Grin. My chocolate habit hounds me even when I'm sleeping. Who else but a woman would dream of Godiva and Lindt chocolates?

        And yeah, I'd rather do this than complain about spammers, unless they come up with something funny and other than "this product good for everything."

        And on the subject of g_e_n_d_e_r confusion, years ago I used to follow posts on a lawyers' forum. Many of the threads took turns as Nona's April Fool's gag did - there was a lot of silliness but it was really amusing. Guess they needed something to take the edge off of working 100+ hours a week and taking home bonuses in the several thousand dollar range.

        Men used to pretend to be women (I suspect they were litigators trying to gain insight into the inscrutable female mind so they could psyche out jurors) and after awhile it was impossible to guess who was male and who was female. I'll leave the speculation at that observation.

        I would never sell out a partner, and I am not for sale!

        but ask about my low lease rates...
